Prepare For Flood Season!
As we enter the month of June, it's essential to be aware that we're approaching peak flash flood season. While flooding can occur at any time throughout the year, flash floods, which develop rapidly within a few hours of heavy rainfall, tend to be more prevalent during this period. At SERVPRO®, we understand the devastating impact of flash floods on homes and businesses. That's why we want to ensure that you have the necessary information and precautions to protect yourself and your property. Here are some key insights to keep in mind:
- Flash flood season peaks in June and July, accounting for over one-third of total reports.
- Flooding is the second deadliest weather event in the United States.
- Summer floods, including flash floods, are on the rise worldwide, catching many people off guard.
To protect your home or business from the damaging effects of flash floods, it's crucial to take proactive measures. Here are a few precautions you can implement:
- Stay Informed: Keep track of weather alerts and warnings in your area. Stay connected with local news channels and follow updates from the National Weather Service.
